Another guilty pleasure. Maybe there are people who don't like it but I personally don't know anyone who hates it. By the way, they originated in Belgium! - Metal_Treasure
Fun fact: French fries actually originated in Belgium. - NicholasYellow

Two main types of examples of English puddings: First, there is the Yorkshire pudding. It's basically a light pastry that is eaten mainly with beef and vegetables.
Secondly, there is black pudding. It 's meat based and looks like a long black sausage which tastes a bit like stuffing. It's mainly eaten as part of the Full English breakfast. Most popular with our Northern English friends. - Britgirl
Finally a clear explanation! Thank you Britgirl! - Metal_Treasure
I've seen so many different things called English/British Pudding that I really don't know how the authentic/original/typical pudding looks like. If somebody from the UK can help... please. - Metal_Treasure
My favorite toppings are smoked ham and smoked chicken breast. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds like "Putin" - ---ChargedZircon---
It's a Canadian dish, originating in the province of Quebec in the late 1950s, made with French fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy. Poutine is the most popular dish in Quebec. It's also found across Canada and in some places in the northern United States.
Poutine has many variations as many toppings can be added - ham, chicken, sausage, bacon, and whatever you like. - Metal_Treasure
I love Emmental cheese (aka Swiss cheese) - it's with holes that look like craters, haha.
Emmental cheese (Emmentaler or Emmental) is a yellow, medium-hard cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, Switzerland. It is one of the cheeses of Switzerland, and is sometimes known as Swiss cheese.
While the denomination "Emmentaler Switzerland" is protected, "Emmentaler" is not; as such, Emmentaler cheeses of other origins, especially from France and Bavaria, are widely available, and even Finland is an exporter of Emmentaler cheese. - Metal_Treasure
Ouzo is an anise-flavoured alcoholic beverage (aperitif) that is widely consumed in Greece and Cyprus. Ouzo is a clear liquid but when water or ice is added, ouzo turns a milky-white colour. - Metal_Treasure
I love middle-eastern food. They're spicy and delicious! - ndrnads20
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy. - Metal_Treasure
Olives and olive oil from Italy, Spain and Greece are really the best. - Metal_Treasure
It's with Irish Whiskey so be careful. It's actually a cocktail consisting of Irish whiskey, hot coffee, and sugar (preferably brown), stirred, and topped with thick cream.
Obviously coffee serves for camouflage - Metal_Treasure
Their Tea Maker is called Samovar. - Metal_Treasure
This is a very fresh salad, with a lot of parsley. There are many Lebanese restaurants and grocery stores in my city. - Metal_Treasure
Canadian bacon is more like ham because it's typically cut from the loin and not from the fatty belly of the pig (American bacon).
Canadian bacon is much leaner than belly bacon and comes in rounded slices rather than strips. - Metal_Treasure
